Colour is a really significant part of our lives but it lives welcome to day 12 of our 17 days in colour. I really hope you’re enjoying the blog, and finding my posts beneficial. Colour is a really significant part of our lives, but it goes much deeper than that. Colour has a huge impact both positively and negatively on our mental, physical & spiritual well-being. Throughout the blog we’ve explored a range of colours all with their own powerful healing properties and now let’s explore the earthy colour – Brown
Brown is the colour of grounding, earthiness and all things material. This colour is represented by the elements of Earth and is excellent if you’re pondering on decisions or if you’re trying to find some resolve when changes are happening. Wearing the colour brown in such situations can bring instant clarity and relief from the anxiety created. Brown also represents stability, alongside conservation, protection of household, family and pets, healing animals & finding lost objects. For anyone trying to make relationships solid, to increase decisiveness and concentration or wanting help in a financial crisis brown is such a powerful colour to wear.
People who have a tendency for attraction towards the colour brown, or practical and logical thinkers, with a preference for natural, tribal and primitive things, solidity and simplicity. Brown can be warm and cosy but also depressing but it’s guaranteed to keep you firmly grounded. Brown is associated with the Root Chakra. People who prefer the colour brown prefer the comforts and nature of life rather than the material and they love more than anything the outdoors – really hating the prospect of being stuck in one place for too long unless it’s stimulating.
Welcome to Day 11 of our 17 Days in Colour and here I’d like to talk about the incredible benefits of the colour Turquoise
The healing properties of the colour turquoise, involve increasing intuition and sensitivity which is why it’s so closely connected with the 3rd eye chakra. Turquoise has the most amazing healing properties including disinfecting and cleansing open wounds. When I talk about open wounds, I’m not just referring to the physical aspect of our bodies but also the emotional aspects. For example, The pain of overcoming grief, the impact of broken relationships or the empty nest syndrome when a child leaves home. Turquoise acts as a kind of antiseptic, soothing and healing in a gentle nurturing way. For anyone going through situations of stress, wearing the colour turquoise will bring almost instant relief as it’s a fantastic peacemaker and balancer. It’s also wonderful to have around either in decorative form or accessories if you’re struggling with any kind of hormonal imbalance. Turquoise is symbolic of the sea and the way the sea reacts to the moon for example how it’s ebbs and flows. Wearing turquoise or being surrounded by turquoise gives a sense of freedom to breathe. The magickal benefits of turquois include, Alterations, intellectual and intuitive insights, technique, inventions, originality, renewal, brotherhood/sisterhood & humanism.
If you’re at a stage in life where turquoise has become your favourite colour, then you’re probably struggling with feeling closed in or cornered either at work or in your Homelife. Having a preference to turquoise as your favourite colour symbolises your need for freedom. This is a great colour to have around you.
Welcome to day 10 of our 17 days in colour. We’ve probably all heard the phrase ‘looking at the world through rose tinted glasses?’ Well, this is often so very true about people who favour our next colour PINK. But who said there was anything wrong with that?
12931901 – the heart chakra
The colour pink is such a beautiful aura to have around you. Pink is very well known for its healing properties around grief and sadness. It’s particularly powerful for people struggling with the ageing process, or women going through the menopause. If you fall into one of these categories, or if you’re struggling with the idea of ageing then pink is the perfect colour for you to have around or to wear. Pink is very powerful in bringing about a feeling of vitality & youthfulness, and balancing emotions and feelings. Although the colour is different, pink is actually associated with the heart Chakra because of its influence on the emotions. The magickal benefits of pink, are its amazing ability to create softness and tenderness, romance, caring, nurturing, for children, youth, peace, friendship, femininity, emotional love, emotional healing. If pink is your colour, you’re most definitely a dreamer but only of achievable things.
You become deeply affected by the injustices of the world, and can’t understand how people don’t seem to be able to care for each other. Being of such a gentle nature, means these things affect you emotionally mentally and spiritually. If pink is your favourite colour, it’s absolutely imperative that you take the time for quiet meditation or relaxation because you really do get affected by your environment. In fact, it’s fair to say that pink people are the strongest of empaths in the world. You pick up other peoples energies either positive or negative almost like a magnet so it’s important you keep yourself cleansed at all times.
Well we made it through to day 9 of our 17 days in colour! What an amazing journey of self discovery it’s turning out to be. Today’s incredible colour is Magenta.
Magenta is probably one of the most powerful healing colours there is, especially if you’re looking for some kind of purpose in your life or you’re feeling stuck in some way. Not only is magenta one of the most powerful colours there is, it’s also known for its speedy nature. For example, speeding up the healing process, getting things done in a more efficient and effective way etc. So if you’re looking to get something cleared up pretty quickly, wearing magenta is advisable. In relation to health & healing benefits, magenta is well known for simulating adrenaline and heart activity.
Magenta is governed by Scorpio which is of course a water sign. This means its magickal benefits are around anything watery for example emotions. This is why magenta is so closely connected with the heart chakra.
Magenta is great if you are looking for a new direction on your life path, so if magenta is your favourite colour, then your personality is one that would be known as the seeker. Someone who is feeling like they’ve lost direction in their life and are now looking for a new one. The thing about magenta people, and those governed by Scorpio, this new path MUST be interesting, otherwise you lose attention very quickly. Therefore, the more magenta you wear and surround yourself with, the better.

People who prefer the colour white, tend to be quite happy living in their own little healing space.
